We scooped it like Houston’s spinach dip back in April and right on schedule, the Samsung T349 is now available from T-Mobile. No, it’s not quite as exciting as some of the other handsets due to drop over the next few weeks and months but the T349 definitely has its place in T-Mobile’s lineup as an affordable messaging phone for tweens. Key features:

  • T-Mobile myFaves® enabled
  • Messaging services
    • Text messaging (XT9 Predictive Text Technology)
    • Instant Messaging (AIM®, Windows LiveTM Messenger, Yahoo!® Messenger)
    • Picture Messaging
